Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- While Kobe Bryant could not find the basket, Sam Cassell could not miss.

Cassell's transition jumper with 3.7 seconds to go lifted the Milwaukee Bucks to their first victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in over six years, a 109-105 triumph.

"We had some guys playing good," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Ray and Glenn were big time and Sam got hot in the fourth quarter. We've been talking about how we have to beat a good basketball team and we did that tonight and we did it on the road."

Bryant, the NBA's scoring leader, struggled down the stretch and Cassell took charge. With the Lakers holding a 105-104 lead, Bryant drove into traffic and forced a banker that did not draw rim.

Cassell came out of the pack with the rebound with seven seconds to go and dribbled quickly up the left side of the court. He pulled up from about 18 feet on the wing and nailed a jumper over the outstretched arm of Ron Harper, giving the Bucks the lead.

"If I slow the ball down and let Harper get his feet together, he's a heck of a defender," Cassell said. "But if you release the ball quickly on him, its to my advantage. I had the momentum going and when the ball left my hand I knew that it was good."

After a timeout, Harper tried to inbound on the left sideline to Bryant. Bucks guard Ray Allen deflected the pass off the fingertips of Bryant and out of bounds with 3.1 seconds left.

"We wanted to try and deny Kobe a catch," Karl said. "I thought Ray made a great play. He angled up and deflected the ball and fourtunately caught Kobe's hand on the way back."

Cassell made a free throw off a dead-ball foul by rookie Mike Penberthy and added two more after taking the inbounds pass. He scored nine of his 25 points in the last 4 1/2 minutes to lift Milwaukee to its first win over Los Angeles in nine games since November 5, 1994.

"I love LA," Cassell said. "If you can't get up to play in front of this crowd, you're not a basketball player."

Bryant scored 25 points in an awful performance. He shot just 8-of-31 from the field, missing his last six shots. A member of the NBA All-Defensive Second Team, he also allowed Allen to score 35 points.

"A lot of those shots came from a lot of contact under the basket," Bryant said. "Most of them came from beating the shot clock. This can't happen again."

Glenn Robinson had 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Bucks, who ended an eight-game skid in Los Angeles dating to March 22, 1991.

Shaquille O'Neal had 26 points and 17 rebounds for the Lakers, who may have been looking ahead to Wednesday's trip to Portland. The defending NBA champions beat the Trail Blazers in seven games in last season's Western Conference finals and again in Portland in this season's opener.

"We've lost a lot of games that we shouldn't have lost in the first part of the season and this is one tonight," O'Neal said. "They got hot in the third quarter, we turned the ball over a few times, and we just played awful defense."

Bryant's 3-pointer gave Los Angeles a 99-96 lead with 4:50 left but he did not score again. Cassell and Allen made jumpers and Robinson and Cassell each made two free throws, giving the Bucks a 104-99 lead with 2:39 to go.

Penberthy, who was 7-of-7 for a season-high 16 points, made a runner and O'Neal, shooting 40 percent from the line, sank two free throws before throwing in a hook that gave Los Angeles a 105-104 edge with 58 seconds remaining.

"It is not hard when you play with Shaq as long as you work with him," Penberthy said. "I just happened to be the one that benefitted the most tonight."

Allen scored 12 points in the third quarter but could not help Milwaukee reduce its five-point halftime deficit. Bryant scored Los Angeles' last five points of the period for an 83-78 lead.

But the Bucks got a huge boost from Lindsey Hunter in an 11-0 run to start the fourth quarter. He made a jumper and Allen hit a 3-pointer before Hunter sank a pair from behind the arc for an 89-83 lead with 9:11 left. Penberthy answered with a 3-pointer and neither team led by more than five thereafter.

"The Bucks came off and scored a lot of points on us," Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. "There was a lot of energy in their offense. We were in the ball game but we could never get control of it."

Hunter scored 13 points and Cassell handed out seven assists for Milwaukee, which shot 48 percent (37-of-82) and made 21-of-24 free throws. The Bucks have won four of their last five games.

Rick Fox scored 11 points and Ron Harper added 10 for Los Angeles, which shot 45 percent (41-of-91) and made 13-of-23 from the line. The Lakers fell to 4-1 against the Eastern Conference.

Allen scored 15 points and Robinson 14 in the first half but the Lakers emerged with a 53-48 lead.
